The exhibition considers the ways in which the ‘figure’ manifests in the work of these artists, defined either as the representation of a body, or as a numeral, a diagram or a geometric form. Starting with this as a curatorial proposition, Figure attempts to weave together the work of artists from twelve distinct positions. The result is a loose topography that reflects on our time and place, with such diverse concerns as memory, the politicised body and formal abstraction.
